The next iteration of SoundSpace is inspired by the new exhibition, "Words/Matter: Latin American Art and Language." SoundSpace: word/play will explore the various ways artists employ connections between sound, language, and text.

The program will feature performances that utilize contact microphones to amplify the sound of drawing; hand-made rubber water hoses with audio clips describing childhood memories; a dance and spoken word piece that explores the onomatopoeia through the physical embodiment of vocalized text and performances by Octopus Project, Grageriart, and Yuliya Lanina.
